Jump scares mostly. Plot arc/backstory is the same old overused one. Slightly different ending.

Pretty shocking that such a horrid American remake could come from as effective a horror film as this was. Great scares and visuals in silly story.

Very scary movie! It's another scary, long-haired Asian girl but the ending was very creepy and it was definitely a fun movie to watch.

EDIT: Upon re-watching, the movie just doesn't hold up well after time. Scares are cheap. Storyline isn't great.

As far as horror goes, this Thai original takes the cake - ALL the cake. Excellent atmosphere, frightening scares and a good story. In the end, in spite of being scared shitless by her, I was almost rooting for the ghost because the characters are all given dimension and humanity that most horror movies lack.

"Shutter" has plenty of scary scenes and is sometimes refreashing in the J-horror wave. But scenes are sometimes too disconnected and try too hard on jump-scares, without success.

A lot of it just doesn't make any sense but, hey, if you put that aside, it's still pretty mediocre.

All of the typical elements of the asian ghost story are there, but Shutter delivers some inventive and often effective scares. [B+]

3 Stars for the twist ending.

Several cliches of asian horror, but it does has it's fair share of scary moments.

Haunting atmosphere was dripping with unbridled terror!

La primera mitad de la obra expone un estilo de terror constante, asfixiante y cada vez ms intenso; a pesar de ello, justo despus del punto medio, el trabajo pierde su impulso y se va ms por el lado de lo ya visto.

Aun con defectos, es sumamente recomendable.

Shutter is mostly indistinct from the recent assembly of Japanese chillers, but it has the scares and the payoff that makes it stand out.

Lo suficientemente entretenida y disfrutable como para verla en una tarde. Sin gotas de sangre, llega a ser ms escalofriante que otras pelculas que andan por ah.

They weren't kidding about Thai horror movies that they contain a lot of scares. This one had a lot. Music and sfx was great in creating suspense and atmosphere. My gripe is with its' story. Meh.

What an adorable ending!

I felt there were a few too many cheap scares and cliches that weigh down what is a better than average J Horror. The story telling was a bit heavy handed at times, but the acting was not bad at all.

I saw the Thay version after the American remake and I can assure that this one is long way better..I enjoyed the final!

Ikke voldsom original, hvis man er bekendt med asiatisk horror, men absolut en af de bedre i genren. Historien er god, og stikker dybere end som s, og en rkke gode chok holder dig p kanten af stolen, til den helt igennem fremragende slutning. Uden at have set den amerikanske genindspilning, tr jeg nsten godt love at originalen er overlegen p alle punkter.

So you think you're photogenic?..Have you ever carefully looked at your pictures?...--A horror movie that doesn't let go from the moment it begins.. Spooky and Effective!!
